Just what is a Social Media Consultant ?By Her Media
I saw this question poised in a blog today and since I JUST added Social Media Consulting to my services description at HerSocialMedia.com it got me thinking.
A short period of time spent on Google will provide you with a multitude of potential answers. Social media is just so new compared to other media’s that the catch all phrase is every where.
I have recently added a Social media consulting service to my business site, only because it seems to fit the description of the services I have offered for a long time.
Which is; business development, PR, and Marketing for clients promoting their business online in what was once web 1.0 and has now evolved to web 2.0.
Essentially I feel a ‘Social Media Consultant’ helps individuals or businesses brand their identity, network, and communicate to their audience online through ‘Social Medias’ which is simply the PLATFORM or media type one is communicating across.
I am a communications specialist, who specializes in communicating across online web 2.0 properties to a specific audience. Of course I could help you with your PR on other medias such as tv, radio, or print publications.
I consider myself a New Media / Social Media Communications strategist and manager.
That is MY definition of Social Media Consultant as it applies to me.
